They have been a regular occurrence at MEL during the pandemic, so not really a rare sight for the time being! Hoping to see a few test flights with QF’s own A380’s, really miss seeing them at MEL!
Yes the CZ A380 has been to MEL every Wednesday on a weekly rotation, at least for the last few weeks/months. Quite interesting because I don’t think MEL ever saw it before the pandemic, at least not regularly? Used to be 777s or A330s as far as I can recall (happy to be corrected).
They flew A380 to MEL right until the pandemic (in fact I recall service started Nov'19 or sometime close)
During the pandemic they resumed MEL after being granted an "award flight" by CAAC for a few months' weekly SYD flights without carrying inbound positive cases.
If either of the flights carries more than five positive COVID cases inbound you'll instantly see the flight gone - and that'll last a few months at the least.
